To herald the release of Warm Bodies, we’ve got a brand spanking new drinking game that’ll require you to wipe the dust off your copy of Night of the Living Dead and drink. A lot. No longer will you need to be afraid of these flesh-eating terrorists, because every time they do something irrational or conventionally zombie-like, you’ll be drunk and won’t notice when they eat your face off.

It’s the fourth installment in the Resident Evil franchise and IT’S IN 3D! Alice is back to kick-ass and not even the removal of her powers is going to get her to calm down. Ain’t nothing going to hold this girl down. Evil corporation, mneh. Zombies, puh-lease. The traitorous living, move over, girlfriend!
